Action Launcher 3.0 is coming as a paid upgrade

Action Launcher was a relatively popular launcher, especially for multitaskers. Of course, Nova Launcher and Apex Launcher were the big kids on the block, but with Action Launcher you had a feeling that it was actually trying to make using your device that much easier. Developer Chris Lacy has recently announced that the upcoming Action Launcher 3.0 will not be launched as a separate app, but as a paid upgrade for version 2.0.

Nova Launcher adapts Lollipop design in latest update

Even before the official announcement of Android Lollipop (actually, even before we knew it was a lollipop), we expected to see most of the apps adapt its Material Design and several other features before its official launch in the next few weeks. One such app that has done this is Nova Launcher in its latest update. Some loyal users consider this the best launcher app yet, and they will be happy to know that the update brings with it several Lollipop-esque features they can already enjoy.

Launchers: taking Nova, Action and Yandex for a spin

One of the attractions of using Android is the ability to customize. This can be everything from adjusting and tweaking the layout using your stock setup, which could include a TouchWiz or Sense experience and it can also include using third party launchers. The launcher category is big and it seems to be growing at a fairly regular pace. Without trying to name every single launcher available, just in recent history we have seen mentions of Apex Launcher and Chameleon as well as Everything.me and Facebook Home.
